I wouldn't worry too much. The Bucks still stand a good chance at landing the players ranked #3, #9, #27, and #33 according to Rivals. I know Bama's in on a few too, but that would move the Bucks back to #1 for a while probably.

I care more about what happens on the field ultimately, but damn I'd love to hear about Alabama's "recruiting national title" streak coming to an end.

IMO last year the QB's, and perhaps the offense as a whole, spent too much time trying to find the big play and just blow everyone out. Had they simply looked to execute and be efficient they would have worn teams down and pulled away much like 2014. I think that we'll see them return to the 2014 form by the end of the season, I'm just not sure how long that will take. Either way, it's gonna be a helluva ride!

TGIF. Hopefully the Bucks add another good one at QB today.

I definitely am looking forward to what the offense looks like this year. Too often last year the QBs looked like they were holding the ball far too long and waiting to get it all in one big play. This year, I'm hoping back to basics means J.T. unloading it quicker and hitting more crossing routes, swing passes, and getting some playmakers the ball in space. I think we'll see a J.T. that looks much more like the 2014 version than the 2015 one.

Build the man a damn statue — complete with his resplendent tattoos — and put it next to Woody's. (As always, I'll let the reader decide if I'm serious or if I'm being hyperbolic to make a point.)

I still think that Pryor was the most physically gifted QB that the Bucks have ever had. He made a big mistake (or several) and his coach made an even bigger one. Were it not for his transgression in 2010, he would have set every single OSU passing record.

Then again, if J.T. stays through his Senior year, he'll break them anyway.

Comment 26 Jul 2016

I think it's stupid when people say recruits get ranked higher because they are from Florida or the south. It's a fact players down here are better. Example: SEC

Agree 100%. I detest everything about the SEC. But the population shift has really caused the talent pool throughout the south to explode. OSU is fortunate enough to be THE big time program in one of the few recruiting hotbed outside of the SEC footprint. It is a huge advantage when you consider that states like California, Texas, and Florida have multiple big time in state programs competing for talent.

Anyone think that it's stupid as hell that they have the coaches speak so early in the day? They could probably get a little more publicity if they followed the model of spanning 3 days and going 5-5-4 on coaches speaking. That way, you could have had UM, MSU, and OSU "headline" each afternoon. Having them start and finish later gives them a better chance to get more nation coverage and interviews with various networks.

On a side note, is the B1G going to do an ESPN "carwash" at some point this summer?

Comment 26 Jul 2016

He'd trade playing in B1G East for playing in the SEC East immediately.

Comment 26 Jul 2016

It's made with real bits of Nittany Lions, so you know it's mediocre.

Comment 26 Jul 2016

I love Notre Dame. They're my distant second favorite team, and way ahead of #3. To make it worse (possibly) Cincinnati is actually my third favorite team. I may have disclosed this in a previous confession, so I'll add yet another.

I'll never get over the way last year unfolded. I know, 2014 was a pleasant surprise that should act as a salve in healing the wound. It doesn't. In 1996, the Buckeyes surprised everyone, so winning the Rose Bowl and finishing #2 was a little easier to swallow. However, it was still disappointing because of how close the Buckeyes came. 2015 will always be at the top of my list of disappointing Buckeye seasons followed closely by 1995, 1996, 1998, 2005, 2006, and 2010. I try to put on a good act and pretend that I'm confident that Meyer will bring multiple additional national championships to Columbus and make those years creep back into the back. The truth is, I'm not convinced that I'll see another CFP title for the Buckeyes.

Comment 26 Jul 2016

Sometimes even great coaches get out coached. That's exactly what happened last November. I'll freely admit, I'm much more scared of MSU with Dantonio at the helm than I am of TTUN with Harbaugh. Meyer's only 2-2 against Dantonio, 48-2 against everyone else. That continues to worry me.
